our two dogs are heppy to go and they seem well looked after
Always use Chalkwell for my dog Holly! Never had a problem and always very friendly!
Our pups have been to Chalkwell twice now and I would recommend these kennels to anyone needing a temporary home for their fur babies! The staff are super super friendly and you can tell they genuinely care for the animals. We know that our gorgeous collies are well looked after and are cared for with lots of love! � thank you Chalkwell xx
Biscuit has been going to Chalkwell for 11 years. He pulls to go in and always comes home haoot and healthy and we'll groomed!
Our lovely patterdale Lana has been going to Chalkwells for years we always find them friendly and helpful. Lana unfortunately had to have her front leg removed due to a tumour last year we would not dream of sending her anywhere else you have been great making sure she's always comfortable when staying and put our minds at ease when we're away.
We have used Chalkwell kennels three times over the last twelve months and are so happy with the service they provide. One of our dogs can be extremely wary of people she doesn't know, so we were a bit nervous of leaving them at kennels the first time. On our second visit, when the girls came to take the dogs from us, our wary dog was so excited to see them that one poor lass was almost bowled over. If she approves, then we most certainly approve. Friendly, helpful service and happy dogs is a winning formula in my book.
I wouldn't take my girls anywhere else, they are so happy going in for their holiday and happy when coming home. Perfect all round.
I have not put any of my dogs in kennels for over 25 years, following a very bad experience with a local (Suffolk) kennel. We have always taken our holidays in the UK or Ireland since then, so the dogs can come with us. I was persuaded to attend a family celebration in Croatia in July 2016, and following a lot of research, good reviews and word of mouth, decided I would only attend if I could get my dogs booked in to Chalkwell Kennels. Thankfully I was able to book early and get a 'family' kennel, so all the dogs could be together, as they are at home. When we subsequently got an invite to spend two weeks over Christmas 2016 and New Year 2017 in America, it was a 'no brainer' who to entrust our dogs with whilst we were away. Even though Chalkwell is 92 miles in the opposite direction from us to Gatwick and Heathrow, it is so worth the trip, as both times all the dogs have come back happy, contented and an added bonus of being beautifully groomed. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Chalkwell Kennels to anyone who wants peace of mind that their precious pets will be well cared for in their absence.
We have left our dog twice at chalkwell now an would not go anywhere else . Lovely caring people who take good care of your dog .�
Fabulous, clean kennels with attentive staff and owners. Couldn't want for more when leaving the dogs behind, knowing they are enjoying their holiday as much as I'm enjoying mine ��
Thanks so much for your great service - left my older dog with you for the first time as I was away for the weekend - I have never left him in kennels before, it was nice to see the dogs relaxing in the play area and the relaxed calm manner of the staff , will not hesitate to use you again
My dogs just love Chalkwell Kennels I wouldn't take them anywhere else even though I have to travel at least 45mins to get there.The owners of this establishment are a lovely couple, nothing is too much trouble and the staff are brilliant....... Well done Chalkwell Kennels ���������
Our Harry has been going to Chalkwells for the last 7 years, when we were looking for his holiday home we visited 6 different ones but none of them was of the high standards , caring and as clean as Chalkwells. Our dog is a very high energy black lab.. but they Know how to deal with him..would not go anywhere else....
absolutely amazing! Reice hated kennels after his last experience at another kennel but these kennels are amazing! Reice was very happy and they took amazing care of him! Thank you so much Brian and Ria, Reice will be back!
Had a great time on holiday was not worried about chewie sounds like he had a great holiday himself Will definitely keep coming back great service recommend to anyone
I am so glad we found Chalkwell Kennels, it's so reassuring to know that Bert is in great hands and being loved by the fab people that work there. I struggled with leaving him in other Kennels but I have no hesitations with trusting his care to Chalkwell.
I wouldn't take my dog Charlie Brown to any other kennel. He is a bit of a crazy dog and they are brilliant with him he always comes home happy healthy and smelling like a baby

You can trust these guys with your babies. I am a crazy cat lady and my Burmese trio are my life, and I know that they are safe and well looked after when at Chalkwell. My oldest two are a bit neurotic (I blame the owner!) and are hard work for the first day or so but Brian and Ria are great with them and know exactly how to deal with them. I am also a vet, and can honestly say that these guys always contact the vets if they have even the slightest hint that your pet is unwell, so you can have confidence that they will detect any early signs of illness. They also give medication free of charge. I recently went away and they even posted some photos of my babies so that I knew they were doing ok and getting lots of fuss 🙂
I worked at Chalkwell for a short time, I have recommended Chalkwell to quite a few clients.....I rarely review animal businesses but as Kennels go, and I have known a fair few in my life, This is the best I have ever known. Genuine love and care for every animal. The amount of attention and freedom given to the dogs is wonderful. They are well worth the journey to ensure your dog or cat have a fantastic holiday. I am so glad to see things are going so well Brian. 😀

Chalkwell kennels is 1h50 from me but to know my dogs have an excellent time and that the staff are fanatical that your dogs are enjoying themselves, they are positive reward based dog trainers too! So I know my dogs are is loving hands. The kennels are alway immaculate the selection of feeding choice is incredible and you dogs don't smell like they have been in kennels when they leave!
We rescued a little Westie last year who has gradually become a beautiful and loving member of our family. She had never stayed in kennels before but she absolute loves going to stay at Chalkwell. Would never hesitate to recommend these kennels. Thank you to Brian, Ria & all the staff 🙂
